Enjoy the Season - Stampin' Up! Birds of A Feather Stamp Set

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super cute Holiday card using one of my favorite stamp sets, and the cutest chubby little bird you will ever see.  If you follow me at all you know that I am in love with the Birds of a Feather Stamp Set and it's one of my favorite sets from the Holiday Catalog so I couldn't help but use it on my card today.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started my card by using a half sheet of Cherry Cobbler cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  I stamped the stars from the set in matching Cherry Cobbler ink in a diagonal pattern on the card base.  Once I had the background stamped I moved onto the focal image.  To start I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the little cute chubby bird in the Santa hat in tuxedo black ink in the middle.  
I then stamped the stars across the top of the Whisper White cardstock also in tuxedo black ink.  I then colored the stars and my little bird in the following colors; Cherry Cobbler (Santa Hat), Pool Party light & dark (bird), and Daffodil Delight light & dark (for the stars and beak).  I then stamped the greeting in Cherry Cobbler ink.  
I added my colored image to a piece of Pool Party Cardstock and then to a piece of Gray Granite Cardstock.  I then attached some of the Cherry Cobbler diagonal striped ribbon and added a knot.  I popped up this piece on to the card base to finish off the card.  
Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you like my little card and you will give it a try for a quick little Christmas Card.

How to Make a Santa Hat Shaped Christmas Card Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing with you the next project in my 25 Days of Christmas Holiday Card Series 2019.  Today, I have a super cute and fun card for you and it's a lot easier than you may think just looking at it.  I was super surprised at how easy it was to create when I sat down and created it.  For today's card I am going to share with you how to create a Santa Hat Shaped card that will truly make someone smile when they open it this Holiday Season.  Let's look at my card shall we.

Tips & Tricks: 

This is actually a very easy card to make.  It's just a matter of drawing out the shape you want the card to be.  The drawing doesn't have to be perfect because you are going to cut it out with your paper snips.  I used a piece of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Very Vanilla Thick card stock scored at 4 1/4 to start.  I then sketched out the shape of the Santa Hat with a pencil making sure to take the sketch up to the top of the fold, letting it go across.  Next I just cut it out using my paper snips, making sure to not cut the top of the card.  If you cut the fold you have nothing to hold the card together.  
After cutting the shape out I flipped it up side down on the Real Red Glimmer Paper and cut it out in reverse.  By doing this when flipped the right way around the glimmer paper fits perfectly on the card base.  I attached it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  At this point I had to add the White band and the pom pom at the end.  I stamped the sentiment on the Whisper White Band in Real Red Ink.  
I did this with just a few pieces of scrap Whisper White Cardstock.  I attached the band with a few Stampin' Dimensionals.  I gave the ends a little shaping before attaching it.  For the end of the hat I used my 1 3/8" scallop circle punch and punched out two and attached them to the end of the hat with a little liquid glue.  
I then die cut the holly and berries from some scrap cardstock.  I used Call Me Clover and some Real Red for them.  The Holly die came from the Cup of Cheer Dies which match the Cup of Christmas Stamp Set (which is also where the sentiment on my card came from) in the Holiday Catalog.  I attached the holly and berries with a little liquid glue and mini glue dots and a mini dimensional behind the holly leaf sticking out over the rim of the hat.
